If you know where to get a good pho­to of Jones (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


I was made a Chris­tian
When my name was giv’n,
One of God’s dear children,
And an heir of Hea­ven.
In the name of Chris­tian
I will glo­ry now,
Evermore remember
My baptismal vow.

I must, like a Chris­tian
Shun all evil ways,
Keep the faith of Je­sus,
Serve Him all my days.
Called to be a Chris­tian
I will praise the Lord,
Seek for His assistance
So to keep my word.

All a Chris­tian’s blessings
I will claim for mine;
Holy work and worship,
Fellowship divine.
Father, Son, and Spi­rit,
Give me grace, that I,
Still may live a Chris­tian,
And a Chris­tian die.
